Four ?ght to make DREAM a reality

How far would you go for a dream? I know four who will go the distance.

On Jan. 1, Juan, Carlos, Felipe and Gaby started their 1,500-mile journey from Miami to Washington, D.C., on the Trail of Dreams. Today they arrive at UNC. Their goal: to raise awareness about the need for immigration reform and the DREAM Act.

The DREAM Act would provide undocumented students between the ages of 12 and 35 the opportunity to achieve conditional permanent residency if they entered the U.S. before the age of 16 and lived in the U.S. for at least five consecutive years, graduated from a U.S. high school, obtained a GED or have been accepted to an institution of higher education and have “good moral character.”

Trail of Dreams events:

12 p.m. — Rally, Wilson Library
1 p.m. — Walk to Durham, Franklin Street post office
